200 cases of extracapsular extraction with Posterior Chamber intra-ocular lens implantation
were studied between February, 1988 to April, 1994 at DHQ Teaching Hospital, Abbottabad and
were followed up, with a view to measure post-op refractive errors and complications. The
procedure was performed either under GA or under Peribulbar anaesthesia using operating
microscope, IOL were inserted with the help of air bubble or methyl cellulose. Michol or
acetylcholine were used in selected cases. (21 % of the patients had visual acuity of 6/6 without any
glasses. 72.6% had visual acuity of 6/9 or more with spherical correction of +2D/-2D. 7.8% of the
patients developed after cataract which needed yag Laser or capsulotomy). The procedure is
treatment of choice for unilateral and senile cataract without any additional complication then seen
in routine E.C.C.E. No extra risk of post-operative complications is experienced
